Mövenpick Restaurant<br />

Christiani Wassertechnik GmbH<br />

<strong>Reference</strong> Letter<br />

Dear Sir,<br />

Our Mövenpick Restaurant opened in January 2000. After a short period, we noticed a high level<br />

of limescale developing on the ice-cream makers. These calcifications could only be cleared bit by<br />

bit which is a time-consuming process. To avoid potential losses, a short-term limescale filter was<br />

installed. The operating time of this filter is limited however and thus resulted in high costs.<br />

At a trade fair visit, we consulted the company Christiani Wassertechnik GmbH about other possibilities.<br />

We installed the limescale converter <strong>Vulcan</strong> 5000 and the ice-cream makers have been functioning<br />

smoothly for 10 months now.<br />

The limescale, which accumulates especially in the crushed ice makers, can now be easily removed<br />

as it is converted into fine-grained structures.<br />

We wish the company Christiani further success with their excellent products.<br />

Yours Sincerely,<br />

Marcel Charrier<br />

Director<br />

Dear Mr. Christiani,<br />

Thank you very much for your service to ”McDonald‘s Ukraine Ltd.”<br />

From our side, we‘re very grateful for your cooperation and support throughout the<br />

last 10 years.<br />

Our company began to operate in Ukraine in 1987. Since then, we‘ve already opened<br />

57 McDonald‘s restaurants.<br />

In all of these restaurants, we have installed the <strong>Vulcan</strong> Descaler by CWT International,<br />

which has delivered consistent results throughout each site.<br />

The <strong>Vulcan</strong> range is easily installed and has been a very useful addition to our<br />

company.<br />

I would like to add that the support of CWT International is very important to us here<br />

at McDonald‘s Ukraine.<br />

Best regards,<br />

Eugene Molodid<br />

TA Truck Stop (Moriarty, New Mexico)<br />

USA<br />

Moriarty Travel Center<br />

Here in Moriarty N.M. we have extremely hard water.<br />

In our truck stop we have to always clean up after it.<br />

The showers are a particular problem. From clogged<br />

shower heads, to constant cleaning and scrubbing to<br />

keep them clean.<br />

It also wreaks havoc with the boilers and water heaters.<br />

After Andy and <strong>Vulcan</strong> Water Products installed the<br />

S100 unit on the main line, we noticed real soon, that the<br />

showers were becoming cleaner, and the discoloration<br />

in the water was gone too!<br />

In our Country Pride restaurant, they noticed a dramatic<br />

change in the color and clarity of the iced tea and<br />

coffee, cleaner, spotless glassware and dishes, and the<br />

ice machine makes clean ice! We are very pleased with<br />

the results. Thank you <strong>Vulcan</strong>!<br />

Kitchen of Spokane School<br />

USA<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> in a School Kitchen<br />

Dear CWT Team,<br />

The steam convection oven has greatly improved since<br />

the installation of the <strong>Vulcan</strong>. The water is injected via<br />

the pipe in the centre of the heating coils and a fan inside<br />

the coils blows the water through the coils and comes<br />

out as steam. The operating temperature of this device is<br />

350F (180°C). The white material you see on the coils is<br />

a powder coating that is easily removed with a wet cloth.<br />

No more chemicals are required to clean the convection<br />

oven.<br />

However, we have noticed even greater results in the<br />

school kitchen, which was previously using a traditional<br />

water softening system. But all in all, we can confirm the<br />

effectiveness of the <strong>Vulcan</strong> treatment, which means less<br />

work for the maintenance staff.<br />

The <strong>Vulcan</strong> unit installed on the entire building system<br />

has also been extremely effective. No more rusty water<br />

after weekends and Christmas break. The next <strong>Vulcan</strong><br />

will be installed on the other school buildings, which are<br />

around 20 – 25 years old.<br />

The last <strong>Vulcan</strong> unit is installed on the main cooling tower<br />

– we have had nothing but positive news in regards to<br />

this installation. We will be seeing more orders coming<br />

from this customer very soon.<br />

3 Months Test<br />

To alleviate the overflow of drainage out of the basket due to oil balls in the grease trap under the<br />

sink of the counter in the cookery on the fifth floor of the building. Also, to save the administrative<br />

and maintenance expenses by reducing the periodical cleanings used to be conducted several<br />

times a year. Pipe Size: 50 mm | <strong>Vulcan</strong> Model: <strong>Vulcan</strong> 5000<br />

For treating water in the cookery on the fifth floor, <strong>Vulcan</strong> is<br />

installed on the vertical piping in the warehouse where the<br />

nearest main water pipe is exposed. The effectiveness of the<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> appears in all the service water on the fifth floor that is<br />

supplied through this piping.<br />

Verification of the effectiveness<br />

Grease trap under the countertop<br />

The status of the grease trap upon installation of the <strong>Vulcan</strong><br />

was confirmed, and the changes of the statuses were<br />

observed for approximately five months from the start of<br />

the operation. In almost all cases, the effectiveness can be<br />

confirmed through the observation for about 3 months.<br />

materials are seen on the portions usually<br />

Grease trap was cleaned with water flow<br />

under the sink.<br />

Similar effects have been reported at drainages in food factories, restaurants and kitchens. Many <strong>Vulcan</strong> installations showed that<br />

the treated water had substantial cleaning effect even with extremely reduction of conventionally used detergents. There were<br />

even some cases where the use of detergent (such as cationic detergent) causes a buildup of a thin film of dirt. Cationic detergents<br />

should not be used. With the portions that do not contact with the treatment water, this effect cannot be expected. <strong>Vulcan</strong> has no<br />

effect of breaking or resolving solids in drainage. Although the <strong>Vulcan</strong> has no disinfection effect, its prevention of dirt from adhering<br />

to the basket and the net contributes to the reduction of mold‘s food source.<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> for Grease Traps<br />

3 Months Test Report<br />

in a cake factory in Kanagawa, Japan<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> has a trouble free design and easy installation. The LED light<br />

always blinks dependably as it shows the processing conditions.<br />

I have compared the state of the grease trap before and after<br />

installing the <strong>Vulcan</strong>. Before installation, I noticed strong odors<br />

when opening the hole. When I opened the hole one month after<br />

the installation, no such odors were present.<br />

As for the cleaning intervals, monthly cleaning may now not be<br />

required. The effect and cleaning intervals of <strong>Vulcan</strong> will require an<br />

annual observation, however, I believe the amount of cleaning will<br />

be reduced remarkably.<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> S10<br />

The water main of the kitchen<br />

Gently solve the scaling problems of the<br />

entire kitchen water system: the reduced<br />

water volume, the increased water pressure,<br />

the clogging of the dishwasher outlet, the<br />

scaling of the steamer, the low heating<br />

efficiency, the increased maintenance and<br />

the reduced overall effi ciency.<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> S10 was installed<br />

in the main water pipe of<br />

the restaurant kitchen<br />

The untreated steamer<br />

The steamer after using <strong>Vulcan</strong> S10 for 2 months<br />

The scale was in flakes and could not be drained out<br />

of the steamer‘s drain hole. To test the effectiveness<br />

of the <strong>Vulcan</strong> system, no cleaning process was<br />

carried out before installing the <strong>Vulcan</strong> S10.<br />

The scale has been completely turned into powder,<br />

so there is no need to open it for cleaning, just by<br />

operating the regular drainage function, it can keep<br />

the hot water tank clean and free of scale. Due to the<br />

good results, the cooperation will also be carried out<br />

in the hotel‘s hot water supply system and central air<br />

conditioning system.<br />

The results<br />

One month after the <strong>Vulcan</strong> S10 was installed, we<br />

opened the sewage outlet of the Chinese kitchen,<br />

and found that the scale scrap came out. At the<br />

same time, we compared the sewage outlet of the<br />

western kitchen without <strong>Vulcan</strong>, there is no scale<br />

coming out. The hotel manager is very satisfied<br />

with the results and is making a new purchase.<br />

The two steamers in the Chinese kitchen had been<br />

scaled badly, they had been corroded and damaged<br />

in 2 years. The client used to clean with acid once a<br />

month, but the steamed food had the taste of citric<br />

acid, and the acid would even damage the equipment.<br />

Therefore, the client is looking for an efficient way to<br />

remove the scale without bad odour after cleaning.<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> S10 was installed on the main water line of the<br />

Chinese kitchen.<br />

Installed by: InterClima<br />

Installation purpose<br />

Most of the hotels in the area of Bávaro/Punta Cana in<br />

eastern Dominican Republic depend on ground water wells<br />

for their domestic water supply, using traditional water<br />

softening equipment to reduce the scale and hardness of<br />

the water. The fact is that some of these resorts have very<br />

poor maintenance resulting in extensive scaling of cooling<br />

towers and domestic hot water piping and equipment.<br />

The results<br />

The project began with a mechanical room energy<br />

audit resulting in a great opportunity to upgrade the<br />

existing equipment with a very short payback period.<br />

The original installation was sold with an estimated<br />

payback of less than 2 years. To our customer’s happy<br />

surprise, the actual payback was 9 months! The hotel<br />

maintenance manager is very impressed with the<br />

performance of the <strong>Vulcan</strong> systems, this opened up<br />

many additional opportunities including the subsequent<br />

chiller and cooling tower replacements.<br />

Before <strong>Vulcan</strong> S100 was installed in hotel’s main hot<br />

water line, the storage tanks had a solid 3 cm thick<br />

scale layer inside them and the pumping pressure from<br />

the booster set was at maximum while being unable to<br />

deliver adequate water pressure to the end of the line<br />

hotel rooms. After the 3 months period, an inspection<br />

of the inside of the storage tanks revealed that the<br />

scale layer was soft allowing them to mechanically<br />

clean them removing most of the calcium deposits.<br />

Other the following 12 to 18 months, the distribution<br />

lines also cleared up resulting in much improved flow<br />

and lower pumping costs from the booster sets.<br />

The manager was instrumental in the approval of the<br />

resent trial installation of an S250 in the Royalton White<br />

Sands (Jamaica). We will continue to use the Barceló<br />

success in our future presentations.<br />

Result installation of <strong>Vulcan</strong> S25<br />

The Chief Engineer reported after an initial 6 months<br />

following installation of the electronic anti-scale system<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> S25 they were able to easily flush out already<br />

dislodged scale from each tank heating unit – instead of<br />

scraping away hard scale from the elements. After a second<br />

inspection the units were found to be almost entirely free of<br />

scale. Future inspections have now been reduced to annual,<br />

random inspections only – which is felt to be suffi cient to<br />

ensure overall domestic water piping system cleanliness.<br />

Inspection after 6 months<br />

One of the water heaters at a Sea View Bungalow (photo)<br />

was opened for inspection and showed much dislodged scale<br />

particles at the bottom of the tank, with some easily removed<br />

soft scale still present on the element only. This water heater<br />

unit had not been scheduled for random inspection since<br />

installation of the <strong>Vulcan</strong> unit at the Resort.<br />

Additional benefits reported<br />

The General Manager and CE reported that shortly after the<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> had been installed, the linen being washed at the<br />

inhouse Laundry plant was softer and whiter. In addition,<br />

Food and Beverage staff reported brighter glass ware<br />

with the detergents working much better. Housekeeping<br />

staff reported that the usual white spots on bathroom tubs,<br />

counters and floors had entirely disappeared and that outlets<br />

of showers and taps needed no longer special attention with<br />

only basic wiping being suffi cient to maintain their shine.<br />

The little remaining scale is soft and easily fl ushed<br />

out since installation of the <strong>Vulcan</strong> <strong>Anti</strong>-<strong>Scale</strong> <strong>System</strong>.<br />

History<br />

The maintenance for these cooling towers previously involved continuous<br />

injection of descaling chemical cleansers. The use of these cleansers was<br />

discontinued over a year prior to the installation of the <strong>Vulcan</strong>. In that time, the<br />

cooling tower flutes became encrusted with both scale and biofilm. Throughout<br />

the time period described below, there were no cleaning procedures in place<br />

with these cooling towers besides the treatment provided by the <strong>Vulcan</strong>.<br />

Observations over time after the <strong>Vulcan</strong> installation<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> S250 installed on a 10 inch diameter line<br />

that feeds twin cooling towers (CT-1 and CT-2)<br />

After 2 weeks, the green biofilm had begun to recede and gradually disappear.<br />

After 3 weeks, the green biofilm had been further reduced and the scale<br />

deposits had begun to separate from the flutes in coin-sized flakes.<br />

After 1 month, the green biofilm had almost completely disappeared from<br />

the surfaces in contact with the <strong>Vulcan</strong>-treated water. The flakes of scale<br />

previously observed had fallen off in most places. The cooling tower flute<br />

surface area covered with scale deposits had been decreased by over 60%.<br />

The <strong>Vulcan</strong> does not change the water quality beyond its affect on its<br />

propensity to cause scale buildup. The pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen level,<br />

and turbidity remained relatively constant during observation from before the<br />

installation to over a month after.<br />

We are very optimistic about continued improvement with <strong>Vulcan</strong>.<br />

The inside of CT-1, after 3 weeks with <strong>Vulcan</strong>.<br />

It illustrates clean flutes that are in constant contact<br />

with <strong>Vulcan</strong>-treated water and a few dry (untreated)<br />

areas that still have some remaining green biofilm.<br />

Dear Christiani Wassertechnik GmbH (CWT),<br />

Due to the shower head scaling problem in Changping student dormitory in<br />

Beijing University of Chemical Technology, the water was getting reduced after a<br />

month, and the shower head was blocked completely after two to three months.<br />

The scale was very hard, so we even had to use the 1.8mm driller to remove<br />

it. In addition, the drinking water heater in the student dormitory was scaled<br />

badly, two heating elements were completely scaled and no longer useful after<br />

one semester, we had to hire cleaning workers regularly, and the damage rate of<br />

heating elements was extremely high.<br />

When I saw <strong>Vulcan</strong> products introduced by your distributor-Beijing North Xinhu<br />

Mechatronics Co., Ltd, we doubted if such a simple product could solve our scaling<br />

problem. Let's try and see.<br />

We installed 2 <strong>Vulcan</strong> to test: one S25 for shower heads in the student bathroom;<br />

one S10 for heating elements of drinking water. After 2 months, no scale was<br />

found on the shower heads, only saw a thin layer of white membrane, and it was<br />

easy to remove. Also, the scale of heating elements were significantly reduced,<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> greatly extends the time of manual cleaning.<br />

Through this test, we are very satisfied with <strong>Vulcan</strong> products with no doubts.<br />

Strongly recommended!<br />

Mister,<br />

<strong>Anti</strong>-scale <strong>Vulcan</strong><br />

W. Kurt<br />

4103 Bottmingen<br />

Following our discussions at the Salon de l‘immobilier Neuchâtelois, we agreed to install the <strong>Vulcan</strong><br />

model S100 on our premises for a five-month test phase as soon as our ice period began operating<br />

in August.<br />

The defined objective was mainly intended for the dumpsters of our two ice resurfacers, which are<br />

filled with snow all day long and therefore subject to weekly descaling.<br />

After a few weeks, we noticed that the scale adhered less. This makes it easier to clean our machines,<br />

saving us time and products.<br />

The test carried out allowed us to take the time to compare the positive effects of the <strong>Vulcan</strong> S100 on<br />

our installation and that the objective set was achieved.<br />

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your warm cooperation and extend our warmest<br />

greetings to you, Sir.<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> S10 effect verification<br />

Before <strong>Vulcan</strong><br />

The pipe had been used for 15 years and had a very thick hard<br />

scale layer inside. The pipe was not cleaned before <strong>Vulcan</strong> S10<br />

was installed. The following two photos are the observation<br />

points selected before <strong>Vulcan</strong> installation.<br />

The <strong>Vulcan</strong> S10 was<br />

installed on the circulating<br />

cooling water system of<br />

the vacuum pump, and<br />

the customer is very<br />

satisfied with the results.<br />

After <strong>Vulcan</strong> S10 was installed for 4 months<br />

The scales inside the pipe have been gradually reduced, and they<br />

do not fall off in blocks, which will not affect the operation of<br />

pumps and other equipment. Because of the good results, the<br />

customer decides to apply <strong>Vulcan</strong> in several other cooling systems.<br />

The front door of the station 20, Xian-he oil production plant.<br />

The water inlet of heating furnace.<br />

Installation purpose<br />

The gas heats the water in the furnace, then the hot water heats<br />

the tubes, so that the water temperature in the tubes rises from<br />

40 ℃ to 70 ℃. The water in the tubes passes through the pump,<br />

transported to various wells.<br />

However, the heat exchanger efficiency is decreasing because of<br />

scale in the tubes. More gas has to be used to heat the furnace,<br />

so that the energy consumption is increased.<br />

The calcium (Ca) content in the water is 1469.09 (mg/L), which<br />

is extremely high. The tubes are scaled badly because a variety<br />

of cleaning agents are added constantly and also the tubes are<br />

kept at a high temperature of 60 ℃ -70 ℃. Every 3 months, the<br />

heating efficiency will be reduced down to 50% or even less.<br />

After running 1 year, the whole pipelines and the tubes need<br />

to be cleaned up manually, which is time consuming and costly,<br />

and reduces production capacity.<br />

Therefore, before installing <strong>Vulcan</strong>, the scale of the tubes was<br />

removed. Then <strong>Vulcan</strong> S25 was installed to see how it performs.<br />

Installation observation<br />

After installing the <strong>Vulcan</strong> S25 for 6 months, we found that there<br />

is no additional electricity usage, and the overall heat exchanger<br />

efficiency is still at 80%. We approved <strong>Vulcan</strong> and will make the<br />

follow-up purchase for the whole project.<br />

In order to heat the water in the tubes, the water temperature of the heating<br />

problems. The tube diameter is 80mm.<br />

Before installing <strong>Vulcan</strong>, the rust and pipe insulation were removed,<br />

and the impulse bands were winded on the pipe. Then, the outer<br />

insulation was put back.<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> Effect<br />

Chrysler has had the S25 installed on the high<br />

Before the <strong>Vulcan</strong> was installed, there would be a<br />

12mm calcium buildup in the nozzle by this time<br />

and they would exchange it with one that had been<br />

acid cleaned.<br />

The maintenance man held the cleaned one in one<br />

hand & the one he had just removed, in the other<br />

hand. He was showing them to an engineer and<br />

held out the cleaned nozzle and said he was going<br />

to install it on the wash station - The engineer said<br />

"Why would you install the dirty nozzle instead of the<br />

clean one!" Everyone was amazed - 35 more <strong>Vulcan</strong><br />

About Huomei Wheel Manufacture Company<br />

Located in Huolinguole Industrial Park, Inner Mongolia.<br />

It is one of the largest aluminum wheels manufacturer<br />

in northern China.<br />

Scaling problems<br />

Before installing <strong>Vulcan</strong>, adding scale inhibitor<br />

was the only descaling method, and the RO<br />

membrane would be replaced every 2-3 months,<br />

sometimes even more often: every 1-2 months!<br />

Each replacement costs about 9,000 USD.<br />

Results<br />

Since the <strong>Vulcan</strong> was installed in April 2017, the<br />

RO membrane has not been replaced until now<br />

(October 2017), and the use of scale inhibitors has<br />

also been reduced by 50%. The estimated cost<br />

savings in 6 months has been around 25,000 USD.<br />

After 3 years of <strong>Vulcan</strong> operation, the results are<br />

still very satisfactory, extending the life of the RO<br />

membrane by about 2-3 times.<br />

A letter from production department of<br />

Huomei Wheel Manufacture Company<br />

From May 2016 to January 2017, 5 sets of RO<br />

membrane were replaced, they cost 50,000 USD.<br />

The issue is urgent.<br />

We found that the problem comes from the water<br />

quality. Suzhou KaiEnSheng recomands <strong>Vulcan</strong><br />

for us to try. Surprisingly, the effect is very good.<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> was installed on April 6, the conductivity<br />

after the three-stage RO membranes were: 17.1,<br />

22.7, 21.5 (μ-Siemens/cm) on the day. Over<br />

4 days, we already saw noticeable effect. We<br />

measured the conductivity again on May 4 after<br />

the three-stage RO membranes were down to<br />

11.5, 11.5, and 11.6 (μ-Siemens/cm). We will<br />

keep tracking the effectiveness.<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> S500 was located inside aluminum box<br />

and installed on a cooling tower main pipe.<br />

Inspections during the 4 years: 10 times<br />

The photographs show that the refrigeration<br />

condenser tubes, from the beginning to the<br />

end of the trial period, were "as clean as<br />

new".<br />

Please note that for 4 years of 365 days continuous<br />

operation, there has been:<br />

►<br />

• No chemical water treatment.<br />

• No bleed off of waste water.<br />

• No cleaning of condenser tubes.<br />

• No water treatment specialists employed.<br />

First Inspection: March 4, 2014.<br />

The heat exchanger tube plates were<br />

removed to reveal the inside surface of<br />

the copper tubes. Since these tubes had<br />

recently been manually cleaned, virtually<br />

no scale was present, as is on this photo.<br />

Last inspection: February 12, 2018<br />

at the end of the 4-year trial<br />

The inside surfaces of the copper tubes<br />

show zero additional scale formation<br />

after 4 years in the test period.<br />

• Copper tubes in the condensers stay very clean<br />

– without scale.<br />

• No cleaning of the cooling tower inside surfaces.<br />

Summary of Benefits:<br />

• Large savings on chemicals. The complete elimination of chemicals<br />

in this cooling tower operation during the field test supports the fact<br />

that <strong>Vulcan</strong> is “eco friendly” and would meet the Leeds and Green Mark<br />

Building Criteria required for “Green Building” designation anywhere<br />

in the world. Enjoy the benefits of a world class, sustainable and<br />

“Green” Cooling Tower!<br />

• Huge savings on blow down water consumption. Significant energy<br />

and water savings due to clean condenser tubes and no need<br />

for water blow downs below electric conductivity 10,000 µS/cm<br />

levels with the electronic cooling tower water treatment system –<br />

representing alone a saving of virtually all previously wasted water<br />

due to blow downs.<br />

• Savings on payroll – no operational stoppages required for condenser<br />

cleaning, less testing and fewer inspections needed.<br />

• Savings on supervision – engineers appreciate the “set and forget”<br />

of this automatic water treatment system. Frequency of inspections<br />

and laboratory expenses for cooling tower water testing are reduced<br />

due to the safety and reliability of the electronic systems.<br />

• <strong>Scale</strong> formation was eliminated. Refrigeration compressors operated<br />

at peak efficiency due to no scale in the condensers.<br />

• Rust prevention in iron pipes is an added benefit of the <strong>Vulcan</strong><br />

system.<br />

About Energy Complex<br />

Energy Complex is the first office<br />

complex in Thailand and Southeast<br />

Asia to be awarded the highest level of<br />

Platinum Green Building certification<br />

from LEED (Leadership of Energy and Environmental<br />

Design) that serves as the prototypical building<br />

in Thailand for energy conservation, harmonious<br />

coexistence of industry and the environment and<br />

optimal utilization of resources.<br />

Installation purpose<br />

Before <strong>Vulcan</strong> was installed, the client used ozone water<br />

system to treat the condenser, but they still found massive<br />

scales in the basin of the cooling towers. They collected<br />

the scales from the basins and weighed them, there were<br />

around 150 kg (average) of scales every month.<br />

The results after 4 months<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> was added together with the ozone system<br />

to treat the water. After 4 months, the approach<br />

temperature of the chiller has been reduced, so that<br />

the energy has been saved from the machine. Also, the<br />

scales from the cooling tower basin have been reduced.<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> S250 and X-Pro 1 were installed on the main<br />

return pipes of the condenser.<br />

7 cooling towers were treated with <strong>Vulcan</strong>.<br />

<strong>Scale</strong> problem: After 1 year without water treatment,<br />

there was an issue with limestone building<br />

up in the irrigation system which blocked<br />

the drippers; 60% of the entire production<br />

(440 trays of microgreens) did not get an<br />

even distribution of water. It required us<br />

to manually water the unwatered parts of<br />

each tray in order to prevent losses.<br />

Client's feedback: "After 7 months with <strong>Vulcan</strong>, we’re seeing<br />

a huge improvement in regards to the<br />

even distribution of water. From now on,<br />

manually adding water to the unwatered<br />

Testimonial with Jamie Cavey<br />

Hi, my name is Jamie Cavey and I operate the only commercial laundry in Pilbara - the Pilbara<br />

Commercial Laundry Services. We are a mid-size operation that specializes in the laundering of<br />

hotel linen, mine site linen and work clothes.<br />

Living in a hard water area like Pilbara means we have ongoing problems with calcium build up<br />

in our piping and air-conditioning systems. The calcium sticks to the heating elements and the<br />

whole internal section of the hot water system becomes completely clogged with calcium.<br />

Twelve months ago we installed a German made CWT Water Treatment <strong>System</strong> from the team at<br />

Southern's Water Technology in Bunbury and immediately we noticed a significant reduction in<br />

the build-up of calcium.<br />

I believe we have quadrupled the life span of our evaporated air conditioner and we haven't had<br />

to replace our hot water system for more three years.<br />

Without the CWT Water Treatment <strong>System</strong> we would be replacing our hot water system every<br />

two years at a cost of more than $10,000.<br />

There is no doubt the CWT Water Treatment <strong>System</strong> will prolong the life span of your<br />

piping and hot water systems and evaporative air-conditioning units.<br />

After the treatment, the adhesiveness of the crystals is reduced so that scale is unable to form in<br />

the pipes.<br />

You can actually see the calcium slowly breaking down through the drainage system.<br />

Sincerely,<br />

Jamie Cavey

with the results. The visible scale deposits are less and the<br />

cleaning is much easier than without <strong>Vulcan</strong> – with less need of<br />

chemicals. Also the scale depositis of the cisterns and shower<br />

heads are much less, so we have less maintenance costs. We<br />

recommend your <strong>Vulcan</strong> system and we will install more <strong>Vulcan</strong><br />

systems in further of our sanitary stations in Switzerland.<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> S50<br />

used for irrigation systems<br />

The production of cut flowers requires intensive use of<br />

plant nutrients. After a trial period of about 5 months,<br />

the impressions were as follows. When it was observed<br />

that the plant has better roots and green parts than<br />

expected, leaf and soil analysis was performed again.<br />

Purpose<br />

Solving limescale problems in irrigation systems.<br />

It was also aimed to prevent the use of limescale<br />

and bicarbonate-derived fertilizers in water in the<br />

growing environment.<br />

When we compared the analysis before and after<br />

the use of <strong>Vulcan</strong>, the analysis showed that after<br />

the use of <strong>Vulcan</strong>, there was a higher rate of plant<br />

nutrient transfer from the calcium and minerals<br />

in the water as well as from the reserves in the soil to<br />

the plant.<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> S50<br />

The absence of limescale stains on the green parts<br />

was also a positive result. There was an increase of the<br />

quality with the use of <strong>Vulcan</strong>. Especially the flower<br />

branch weight is an important criterion and we have<br />

observed an increase in this area. Fertilizer savings<br />

were achieved with the use of <strong>Vulcan</strong>.<br />

Dear CWT,<br />

I am a professional cultivator of decorative plants and trees for more than 30 years.<br />

I have always hard water quality problems. This water, I irrigate with it, comes from<br />

a bore. This water is brackish, which means of course, it is very bad for the plants.<br />

Actually, I have been burning my plants all these years because of too much salt.<br />

I also have to emphasize on the fact that all these years the leaves of the plants had<br />

a white color and not the well-known green color. That is of course because of too<br />

much salt of the water.<br />

Installing the <strong>Vulcan</strong> S25 device, I found out that there is not anymore white<br />

sedimentation on the leaves and soil. Most of all I realize that there is a big<br />

improvement in the growth of my plants. I also found out that there is a better and<br />

quicker foam creation. Wherever we want to wash our hands or even clothes etc.<br />

Finally, I must say that I really found the solution to my problem, which has been<br />

bothering me for all these years, using the <strong>Vulcan</strong> device.<br />

I really have to thank you from the bottom of my heart.<br />

Dear Mr. Christiani,<br />

Thank you a lot for sending me the stronger electronic system, which I installed immediately. I noticed<br />

that the drinking behavior of the animals improved promptly. I can give you more details after a longer<br />

observation period. Now about the promised observation of the CWT water treatment device:<br />

After 2-3 days of the installation, it was remarkable that the lactating cows were permanently drinking<br />

from the drinking trough and that therefore the milk production also improved after 14 days, which<br />

again led to higher weights of the piglets (before: ca. 7 kg, now: 8 kg). This continued for several<br />

months.<br />

Furthermore, we observed that scale and biofilms in old pipes for liquid feeding dissolved, leading to<br />

an improved feeding behavior of the fattened pigs. Moreover, we used to have trouble with flank<br />

abscesses due to biofilms that were probably caused by bacteria discarding endotoxin. This<br />

progressively improved with the use of CWT water treatment.<br />

I can also tell you about a cow farmer whose pipes were not clogged anymore after the installation of<br />

CWT products. Before, he had to flush the pipes every 4 weeks with air and water to make sure the<br />

cows could get enough water through the pipes. He could furthermore observe that the biofilm on the<br />

high-alloyed steel drinking trough dissolved after 14 days. After about 4 weeks, the farmer also<br />

reported that the cows produced about 0.5 L more milk per day.<br />

Negative observations:<br />

The next year in February, I started to occasionally add acids in the tubes with the consequence that<br />

the positive effect of the CWT water treatment mostly vanished. Furthermore, new biolfilms built up in<br />

the pipes, which I could make visible by flushing the pipes. The animals began to show more flank<br />

abscesses and ear necrosis again. This improved again after the flushing in the beginning of June.<br />

Then, on 19 July, I installed the stronger electronic system. Since then, I have the feeling that the<br />

livestock has stabilized and has become more vital.<br />

I hope I can give you more positive news soon and that I can tell you, whether an occasional addition<br />

of acid to the water system is possible without damages, since it is common practice to use acidy<br />

products in farms holding pigs and turkeys.<br />

Please don’t hesitate to contact me for further questions.<br />

Best regards,<br />

Review of the VULCAN equipment<br />

Installation location: Main water feed of Mother and baby convalescent home ― Telshe Stone.<br />

<strong>System</strong> installed: VULCAN S100<br />

The system was installed on our main source of water supply in the main water supply to the building.<br />

Before installing VULCAN, we treated the scale with water softeners, which required large amounts of salt,<br />

cleaning and maintenance.<br />

► For dishwashing systems, hot water for showers and washing machines we used salt softeners.<br />

► Drinking water boilers and kettles in the wards required weekly cleaning with tartaric acids.<br />

► Shower heads needed frequent treatment to remove scale deposits.<br />

After installing the VULCAN system:<br />

► We have stopped consuming acids to clean the drinking water containers. They can now be cleaned by hand.<br />

► Water softeners have been taken out of operation and no more salt is used!<br />

► The dishwashers are clean!<br />

► The shower heads < After a period of cleaning all the pipes > do not need cleaning and no replacement is<br />

required.<br />

Savings:<br />

► In cleaning materials, filters, maintenance time, and not needing to stop the use of facilities just for the sake of<br />

cleaning the water systems.<br />

► Financial savings: the price of a VULCAN system is covered within a reasonably short period of time.<br />

Results before and after the <strong>Vulcan</strong> installation<br />

Kitchen Kettle<br />

Before (without <strong>Vulcan</strong>): A layer of scale had accumulated at the<br />

bottom over time, it was impossible to remove it with a plastic spatula.<br />

We could only leave vinegar to let it act for a long time, so that the<br />

scale could be removed.<br />

After (with <strong>Vulcan</strong>): <strong>Scale</strong> is easy to be removed, even with a<br />

finger or a damp cloth.<br />

External surfaces of pots and pans<br />

Before: If you do not wipe off water right away, the water would leave<br />

spots and it would be difficult to remove afterwards. You can only<br />

clean with dishwashing detergent again, and wipe off water without<br />

delay.<br />

After: Even the pot has been dry for 30 minutes, it is still easy<br />

to remove spots with a damp cloth. If it is left to dry for a longer<br />

period, e.g. 1 night, the spots disappear after rubbing the surface<br />

for several times with increased pressure but still without<br />

detergent.<br />

Sink (stainless steel)<br />

Before: Quick greasy fouling, especially after removing residues from<br />

cooking oils with rinse water from cooking tools. Rough sponge and<br />

brush with degreasing detergent needed.<br />

After: The degreaser is still necessary but the cleaning is easier<br />

and less work.<br />

After: The white powder on these surfaces is easy to remove<br />

with a wet sponge (no special cleaning product).<br />

Chrome faucet<br />

Before: Scraping scales with a knife onto the spay heads was necessary<br />

because the outlet holes of the spay heads were stuck by scales.<br />

Garden Sprinkler <strong>System</strong>s<br />

Australia<br />


Gelorup<br />

Western Australia<br />

Water treatment system by CWT Germany<br />

My wife and I live on a 5 acre property at Gelorup, 20 minutes south of Bunbury in Western<br />

Australia. Our local water causes enormous problems with our reticulation system. Large quantities<br />

of iron sludge and chips would build up in the piping system and block the solenoids and individual<br />

sprinklers. The situation was getting us both down. It seemed like the sprinklers were continually<br />

blocked and I was replacing the solenoids every six months.<br />

Within three months of installing the CWT water treatment system the rust residual and sludge disappeared.<br />

I was staggered by the results. The pipe was completely clear and there were no signs<br />

of the iron scale at all.<br />

A reliable and clean sprinkler system is very important for us to maintain a healthy garden which contains<br />

more than 200 rose bushes and half an acre of trees and cottage garden. Our horse paddocks are also<br />

under reticulation. The CWT system has saved me an enormous amount of time and money and I’m no<br />

longer cleaning sprinkler heads or replacing the solenoids in the reticulation system.<br />

The results have been so successful we are now planning a major expansion of the<br />

garden and bird aviary. I would recommend this product for anyone who lives in a hard water area<br />

in Australia. They’re simple to install and maintenance free.<br />

Hairdresser Recommendation Letter<br />

Hairdresser Claudia Gugler‐Roux<br />

www.coiffureclaudia.ch<br />

Recommendation <strong>Vulcan</strong> Ueberstorf, November 2011<br />

In the course of my almost 25 years of career as an hairdresser, I have been dealing with the element of water every<br />

day. That is exactly how long I have been searching for a method to reduce lime deposits.<br />

For 10 years now I have been running my business in my own house. All the more I was interested in doing something<br />

against the constant cleaning and descaling in the household. Furthermore, the whole family prefers tap water as<br />

their main drink. So the quality of the water is very important to us.<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> sounds very interesting and I decided to install such a device for a test.<br />

After we have been using <strong>Vulcan</strong> for half a year, we can make the following positive observations:<br />

<br />

<br />

<br />

<br />

<br />

<br />

<br />

Less limescale deposits in shower, bath, WC.<br />

Easier cleaning of our glass shower cabin (considerably less limescale deposits).<br />

The water is noticeably softer, which is noticeable when washing my customers' hair.<br />

The drinking and tap water is of a higher quality. It is noticeably more velvety and tasteless.<br />

Taps and nozzles are less calcified.<br />

The coffee machine is hardly calcified any more.<br />

Generally less consumption and use of conventional descaling agents.<br />

All in all only positive findings. We bought the <strong>Vulcan</strong> with complete conviction. If the statements also apply to the<br />

water pipes in the house, our water pipe system will not incur any expensive maintenance costs in the next few years,<br />

so that this investment has also paid off here.<br />

Addendum 27.05.2020: Even after 9 years I am still very satisfied with <strong>Vulcan</strong> and am happy to give my consent for the<br />

publication of this reference.<br />

The good comments of the director of the residence:<br />

After 1 year of use, the results are positive, the cleaning<br />

of limestone in kitchen appliances has decreased by 75%.<br />

We have done tests on the filters in the kitchen, we stopped<br />

changing the kitchen’s water filters in 2018 when installing<br />

the <strong>Vulcan</strong> system. In 2020, the old filters of 2018 are made<br />

immaculate white as if they were new, we can affirm that<br />

the <strong>Vulcan</strong> system makes it possible to stop filter<br />

changes, with a fairly high efficiency that the <strong>Vulcan</strong><br />

system was used to clean the old filters clogged.<br />

We also noticed a complete stop of the service calls<br />

concerning the limestone in the showers of housing. Before<br />

the <strong>Vulcan</strong> system, we had to clean the shower heads in<br />

each of the homes every 16 months. Since the installation<br />

of the system, no customer has requested service for<br />

cleaning.<br />

In summary, we are completely satisfied with the system,<br />

and we can say that customer service and water quality<br />

have been greatly improved.<br />

Concerning the effect of the water-treatment device<br />

Test subject: water treatment device "<strong>Vulcan</strong> 5000"<br />

Manufacturer:<br />

Christiani Wassertechnik GmbH (CWT)<br />

Heinrich-Heine-Str. 15<br />

D-52249 Eschweiler<br />

Test instruction:<br />

A test should be carried out to determine whether <strong>Vulcan</strong> 5000 can reduce lime<br />

deposits in water pipes and household equipment in a purely physical manner<br />

without altering the water chemically.<br />

Experimental demonstration of function:<br />

The effect was verified in a heat exchanger arrangement using two identical testing<br />

units. Water was withdrawn from the water pipes simultaneously upstream and<br />

downstream of the device to be tested and calcium precipitation forced in the heat<br />

exchangers.<br />

As lime deposits increase, the flow of water decreases. The more water flows<br />

through the experimental arrangement, the smaller tendency there is for the water<br />

to form scale on pipes and container walls. The test was carried out on the basis of<br />

the practice-related water withdrawal of a four-person STEINBEIS-STIFTUNG household FÜR with the additional<br />


regular withdrawal of five litres of water at half hourly intervals for a total of six weeks.<br />

(Foundation of economic promotion Reutlingen)<br />

This test showed that the tendency to form lime deposits is reduced considerably by<br />

the “<strong>Vulcan</strong> 5000” water-treatment device. In addition, the effect continues for some<br />

days after “<strong>Vulcan</strong> 5000” has been switched off. Seemingly, the effect is not only<br />

limited to a certain part of the pipe, but also passed into the water flowing nearby<br />

sections of the pipe.<br />

Dear Ms. David,<br />

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for the great offer to test your<br />

<strong>Vulcan</strong> 3000 for six weeks.<br />

My results ...<br />

The device was very easy to install on the water pipe.<br />

After plugging in the power supply, it was ready to go.<br />

And how it started....<br />

After just two days (by which time the water in the hot water tank had almost been<br />

replaced), the limescale deposits in the bathroom (glass door and fixtures) were noticeably<br />

reduced. We could also notice positive effects of the „lime converter“. Hardly any deposits<br />

in the black kettle and coffee maker. Another positive point is that you have the feeling of<br />

softer hair after showering.<br />

What can I say, that device meets our expectations to our complete satisfaction.<br />

Thank you very much.<br />

First-hand report concerning the <strong>Vulcan</strong> 5000 electronic water treatment system<br />

Dear Mr. Christiani,<br />

We would like to in the following share our experience with the VULCAN 5000 device.<br />

We installed the VULCAN 5000 device for a trial period back to last year. As the results of the device<br />

during the trial period were positive and conformed with our decalcification requirements, the only<br />

thing preventing us from making the purchase immediately was that we were waiting to test two<br />

further devices.<br />

The other two devices which were based on magnetism could not maintain the same results achieved<br />

by the VULCAN 5000. The effect of one device was incomparable, the other device was difficult to<br />

assemble due to incorrect dimensions. Since our family house is an old building with an extension<br />

built in 1991, the water pipelines are so laid out that the distance from the wall to the centre of the 1<br />

inch supply line is only 25mm. Despite this narrow width the installation of the VULCAN 5000 device<br />

was not a problem.<br />

After we sent back your device and the other two shortly after, we put off the issue of water softening<br />

and decalcification. However, after visiting the ‘Heim & Handwerk’ trade fair in Munich this year, we<br />

decided to purchase your device, due to our high water hardness.<br />

Since the installation we have noticed the immediate effects of softer water as well as a decrease in<br />

the amount of scale. The reduction of scale is particularly visible in the transparent water container<br />

of our espresso machine as well as in the aerators. We are confident that we have purchased the<br />

correct device for our house with a good price/performance ratio.<br />

Yours Sincerely,<br />

Family Janker
